Two New Names- Same High Quality Service
Bloomfield, CT – March 1, 2011 – Seabury is pleased to announce the opening of a new private-duty home care agency, Seabury Care Now. The mission of Seabury Care Now is to enable individuals, who need care and services, to remain safely at home. Seabury Care Now is available from three hours to 24 hours per day and qualifies for coverage under private long term care insurance.
Seabury Care Now is a one-stop shop for all of one’s immediate care needs and provides: private duty nursing visits, personal care assistance, memory support, companionship, transportation, medication management, case management, light housekeeping, laundry, meal planning/preparation, grocery shopping, etc. and medical alert systems – such as Lifeline, My Halo, or Skeeper.
As a result of this new agency, we’ve also taken on a new name for Seabury Home Care, which is now Seabury Visiting Nurses. This name change allows us to better differentiate the differences between the two agencies. Seabury Visiting Nurses is a Medicare/Medicaid Certified Home Care Agency that offers visiting nurses, rehabilitation services, home health aides and social workers. In order for services to be covered by Medicare/Medicaid, Seabury Visiting Nurses must receive a physician’s order for services. One must also be considered “homebound” and have a skilled need, i.e. nursing and/or therapy. While Medicare homecare (Seabury Visiting Nurses) is generally short-term in nature, private-duty (Seabury Care Now) is commonly needed long-term.
Two new names – same high quality service! “Seabury Visiting Nurses and Seabury Care Now offer peace of mind knowing that the same quality of care & services you have come to expect from Seabury are available at home,” said Pamela Klapproth, V.P., Community Outreach Services.
